There is an old adage that says
“”Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”
I don’t think this is true
My best friend put it best when she re-worked that phrase thus
“Power does not corrupt, it merely attracts the corruptable”
This is something we have talked about at length due to my research into corrupt politics. Basically what it boils down to is this. Anyone who seeks power, 99 times out of a hundred, should not be elected. It is they who are corruptable by their very longing for power.
Those who should be elected are those for whom we have respect for their deeds not their words. Those who do not seek your vote but have by the collective good will of the people been recognised for the good they have done and persueded to represent them.
This is the difference between your “representatives” and your “rulers”
The current “leaders” of our nations have lost what the meaning of their roles are. They are merely elected and salaried representatives of the people’s will. This is what they are supposed to be. However, our “leaders” today have forgotten this job description and are all acting as if they have “power” whereas the power lies with the electorate. Our “leaders” are behaving more like kings than civil servants. They all sought power. They are carear politicians. They have all been corrupted into Kings, because they were power hungry and therefore corruptable.
If a country runs fine before an election whereby a change of government occurs, ask yourself why does the new government needs to invent 3,000 new laws in their term? This is what the Blair government did in Britain. 3,000 more rules to limit your freedom, why? The people did not vote them in to further limit them by 3,000 different means. They were getting on quite nicely before Emperor Blair arrived and the police had all the scope they required to control crime.
The same has happened in the USA, Canada, Australia and Europe in the last decade. What you have to ask yourself is… WHY?
Why do societies that work fine require carear politicians to continually legislate them to the point where every aspect of your lives is subject to legal constraint and possible discipliniary action by an over zealous state control system. This is where we now reside with long term carear control freaks passing more and more law in order to keep us repressed.
These are the actions of the guilty and fearful. Fearful that one day the people will decide we no longer want your type of government. This fear predicates more and more corruption and control from above. This is why you now see the rise and rise of the surveillance state.
Freedom of speech is gone, freedom of protest is gone, freedom to associate and congregate is gone, freedom to be unmolested by government in the street or in your own homes has gone, freedom from state persecution is gone, freedom from unlawful detention has gone, freedom to eat or drink what you prefer has gone, freedom to privacy and anonymity has gone, freedom not to be medicated has gone, freedom in how to raise your children has gone.
Did you not even notice all this disappear?
Government worldwide has forgotten who is sovereign. The people are the nation, not the government. they have forgotten that they represent us and our requirements for life. They have been corrupted and now behave like our masters.
Please everybody start to wake up and see this. You can do something about it. You are the power. Your vote is all it needs. Find the people who are not corrupted and bring them forward to represent you. Some still exist in office but are very few and you find they often resign due to clashes of concience so they need support, but your own independant representatives are the sure way to uncorruptable politics
We can turn this system around and boot these big political party “men who would be king” back into the street where they came from and elect people who want what you want and listen to you
